The next social justice protest is now scheduled by Dafni Leef for October 29th in Israel. If you have never heard of Dafni before, she was just named Woman of the Year:
Globes has named tent protest leader Dafni Leef as its “Woman of the Year” for 2011. She beat OC Manpower Maj.-Gen. Orna Barbivai, the first woman to be appointed a major-general in the IDF; billionaire Shari Arison, Bank Leumi CEO Galia Maor, Kadima leader Tzipi Livni, Apax Partners Israel CEO Zehavit Cohen, Supreme Court President Dorit Beinisch and Labor MK Shelly Yacimovich.
In announcing its choice, Globes said: “People said that she stammered, that she lacked clout, that she did not know what she wanted. But in the end, Dafni Leef, 25, became the generator of the biggest revolution Israel has ever known. She opened the valve, and the pent up pressure blew out with a force that no one expected. Even after repeated attempts to push her aside and thuggish acts against her, she insisted on taking command on the most exciting and earthshaking event in the country.”
Imagine what would happen in our country if our children had been educated in Constitutional and founding principles. Israel is seeing the consequences of a youth movement seeking social justice. How will our media reward people who “open the valve”?
Social protest leader Dafni Leef announced a mass protest to take place on October 29, during a Tuesday press conference. She added that the protest movement leaders have no intention to enter politics.
The last protest drew over 400,000 people in early September to demand socioeconomic changes from the government under the banner of “social justice.”
